Back in Action

The past two weeks have been a struggle for me, in terms of workouts and eating...I think that our trip to Vegas and my subsequent three days of sickness contributed to my lack of motivation to eat or workout. I've actually had to make myself eat and lately my workouts have been sporadic or nonexistent. Well, today that all ends. As I type this post, my buffalo fritatta is cooking away in the oven and I just finished a great WOD at CFR.

Surprisingly, my strength has actually increased/remained, regardless of my lack of commitment (to my workouts) over the past two weeks...I feel that this can be attributed to my steady commitment to Paleo eating (no, the beers I consumed at our Super Bowl party are not considered Paleo). So, yes, I remain convinced that this lifestyle change is working for me. And, not surprisingly, my hunger struck almost instantly upon beginning my deadlifts...one of those 'Catch 22' sort of moments...I was likely lacking hunger due to my lack of workouts and was not motivated to workout due to my lack of hunger/eating.

So, moral of the story...eating Paleo works and working out makes me feel better. Enlightening...right!?
